Margot & the Nuclear So and So's
Perhaps the first post-Wes Anderson band, Margot and the Nuclear So and So's take their name from Margot Tenenbaum of the 2004 Anderson film The Royal Tenenbaums. Formed in Indianapolis by Richard Evans, the band release their first record of twee chamber pop in 2006, The Dust of Retreat, and earned a small but loyal following. After a number of lineup changes and label issues, they return in 2014 with their fifth album Sling Shot to Heaven. Expect harmonies and tear-jerking lyrics with enough noisemaker symphonies to keep their songs dynamic.
